There is a “stirring” from within the news outlets addressing the newest released classified documents citing an anonymous whistleblower, on Obama’s War using and abusing drones titled the “The Drone Papers”:

A Whistleblower Releases Classified Documents on Obama’s Drone War

“The United States has been using its assassination drones in both declared and undeclared war zones for over a decade. That’s according to a cache of classified documents released by an anonymous American whistle-blower referred to by media as the New Snowden.

The documents posted by the online publication, the Intercept, suggest drones have been President Barack Obama’s weapon of choice and are being used by the military and the C-I-A. The documents contain two sets of slides detailing the US drone war in several Muslims countries in Asia and Africa. They reveal that Washington categorizes unidentified drone victims as enemies in order to hide the true numbers of civilian casualties. According to the whistleblower, the US intelligence intercepts phones and emails to fix its targets. He says such methods often prove faulty with nearly nine out of 10 fatalities being innocent people including US citizens. One document shows the drones killed 200 people in Yemen and Somalia between 2012 and 2013 BUT only 35 were the intended targets.”

24 people killed in US airstrike on hospital in Afghanistan

“The international medical charity group MSF says the US may have destroyed evidence of potential war crimes when one of its tanks on Thursday forced its way into the bombed Kunduz hospital in Afghanistan.

MSF also known as Doctors Without Borders, says the unannounced entry damaged property and destroyed potential evidence related to the recent US airstrike on the group’s hospital in Kudnuz. The charity adds that it was informed only after the intrusion that a delegation from a joint US, NATO and Afghan team was investigating the air attack. At least 24 people including 10 patients and 14 staff members were killed in the US airstrike on October 3. According to a report by the Associated Press, US intelligence analysts knew that the target of the air raid was a hospital.”

Typhoon Koppu (Lando) Nears Philippines Landfall

Enhanced Satellite“Typhoon Koppu’s outer rain bands lashed parts of the Philippines Friday while winds in its inner core continued to power up. The powerful tropical cyclone is expected to make landfall within the next 24 hours before tracing a painfully slow and dangerously rainy path across the northern part of that country, where it is known as Typhoon Lando, this weekend and early next week.

The U.S. military’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center upgraded Koppu to the equivalent of a Category 3 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale in its 11 p.m. EDT advisory Friday, estimating its maximum sustained winds at 120 mph.

While additional strengthening is possible before landfall, by far the most ominous threat for the Philippines will be its prolific rainfall as it grinds across the mountains and valleys of Luzon, the main island of the northern Philippines and home to almost half of the country’s 98 million people.”  More…{source:  weatherchannel.com}

Comment:  I had viewed earth’s global map yesterday, October 15, 2015, and never saw this developing weather system on earth.nullschool.net.  I now see Typhoons Koppu and Lando:

The Evangelical Christian Martyrdom Complex

“Last week I noticed a headline on the Friendly Atheist titled Evangelist Wants to Know If You’d Say “Yes, I’m a Christian” with a Gun to Your Head. This brought to mind what I was taught as an evangelical child—that if anyone ever asked me to deny the faith, I was to refuse, even to death. We read stories of Christians martyred in other countries because they refused to spit on the Bible or renounce their faith.

But today I’m a mother. And you know what? If someone put a gun to one of my children’s heads and told them to say that they hate their mother, I would want them to say it. If God is our father, shouldn’t he prefer that his children live than that they die, even if that means they are compelled to verbally renounce him in order to live, while continuing to embrace him in their hearts?”  More…{source:  patheos.com}

Comment:  The article basically outlined one person’s perspective to “lie”Liars to protect  oneself or “deny” Christ verbally but inwardly continue to profess their spiritual belief in Christ to avoid being murdered.

However, noble the author may think she is–she is being double minded.  I know words are powerful making them important in all that we do and believe that sets our standards.  I did a quick bible search regarding “liar” …

I also did a quick cursor search on “abomination”:

Abomination lying lips ProverbsYou will notice that the Book of Proverbs is also known as the Book of Wisdom has a few choice descriptions on “lying lips” as an abomination.

Further reading on Proverbs 6:16:

16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

I would really be very careful about “lying” to protect oneself, particularly if you deny Christ verbally because it will boomerang.

I’m of the basic opinion, if anyone wants to “protect” themselves, don’t say anything.  But if confronted with a gun or a knife to your throat–pray because it’s going to have an everlasting outcome.

Summary:

Jesus Christ is the answer to all of our problems.  Are you saved?  Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior?

“I am the vine, you are the branches.
He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit;
for without Me you can do nothing.”
{John 15:5 NKJV}

Pray to the One who saves man’s soul from eternal darkness separated from the giver of Life, Jesus Christ.  Ask Him into your heart, repent of your wrongdoings (sin) and accept Him into your daily lives.  He is faithful, He is forgiving, He will save you.

Stay safe. Be blessed.

 “…if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet,
and the people are not warned,
and the sword comes and takes any person from among them,
he is taken away in his iniquity;
but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”
{Ezequiel 33:6}

  1. In old age, it’s easy to grasp that our natural bodies soon pass. The simple fact is that can happen to anyone at any age. So, why cling so hard to what we can not keep?

    Daniel and his friends in Babylon chose death (lions & fire) instead of compromise.

    Christ, as Son of God, even under threat of death and torture did not deny who and what He is.

    Here’s the standard:

    And we know that Peter thrice denied Christ. But not so after Christ’s Resurrection.
